Liu Yue's works often take objective things as the starting point, through the extreme intervention of cognitive experience, making the process of in-depth research have a strong sense of agnosticism and the unknown. In this kind of clue which is always parasitized by the cognitive limitation, the objective subject of cognition will also form a strong anti-materiality with a paradoxical logic. It makes people curious to observe the connection between the whole context and the concrete things in the cognitive process with the potential of falsification. Under those limiting extrapolations, the cognition creates "cracks" in itself. This process of extracting and purifying "impurities" from the essence of things is exactly what Liu Yue is extremely obsessed with.
